Welcome to Sacred Heart Parish. May you feel at home!
Friend, welcome to Sacred Heart Parish, located in Arkansas City, Kansas. We are a Catholic community centered around the Body and Blood of Christ. I hope that you come to know our parish family and worship with us. We are a diverse group, about four hundred fifty families, comprised of English and Spanish speaking backgrounds. Yet, we are one in the Lord, and in our love for Him. Welcome friend. ~Fr. Patrick Reilley
Guided by the Holy Spirit and the infinite love of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, our mission is to become a family of God’s children united in the Body of Christ.

Stewardship:“What Gifts Do I Share?"
Exaltation of the Cross
Nm 21:4b-9; Phil 2-6:11; Jn 3:13-17
|The stories of the Israelites wandering in the desert grumbling against Moses are a stark reminder of how ungrateful mankind can be. They were released from slavery and being led to the Promised Land, yet at times they preferred bondage to freedom. God has an infinite love for us and showers us with countless blessings yet we turn inward to try to satisfy our longings and continually fall short. Jesus came into the world to save us and from the cross brought us salvation. When we gaze at a crucifix, we see an image of infinite love, a love we can share with the world. May our journey in this world always bring us closer to the Kingdom of Heaven and may the cross lead us back when we lose our way.|
